Prom is such an amazing rite of passage. You have studied so hard, made so many fabulous friends and this night is for celebrating everything you have achieved together. It may just be one night, but you will be reminiscing over everything that happens for years to come.
It is such an important night, that we wouldn’t want you to miss out of any of the traditions and little extras that will make you feel a million dollars and give you memories to treasure. This is your time, as they say, so make it count.
If there was ever a time to wear a ball gown, prom is it. All the gents will be in tuxedos so this is your time to show off your figure and let your beauty shine. There are all sorts of different styles of dress for prom so you should pick one that will suit your body shape. Consult with your friends too to see what they are planning to wear - you could even have a pre-prom party to choose your outfits. Wearing the same dress as someone else at prom is obviously going to be embarrassing but some boutique keep track of the dresses they sell to avoid you making this faux pas.
Your Hair & Make-up
What you do with your hair and makeup really comes down to your dress.A classy up-do is a must if your dress has detailing around the shoulders or back. This way you can show off your dress effortlessly. If in doubt, soft curls are always going to compliment you and frame your face perfectly. Simple make-up with a bit of colour to complement your gorgeous eyes is always going to work, but if you’re feeling brave, be a little bit more extravagant with a bold lip colour.
Arriving at prom is like stepping out onto the Hollywood red carpet so a limo is a must. There are all sorts of different types of limo to choose from but a good place to start is here: http://www.bergenlimo.com/fleet/new-jersey-nj/. A black or white limo is always a safe bet as it definitely won’t clash with your dress, but if pink or champagne catch your eye, go ahead and have some fun!
Your school will have most likely hired a couple of photographers to document the night, but having a few pictures at home with your family and friends is not an opportunity to be missed. Be creative with your pictures and do some goofy ones as well as the more serious ones. Mix up who is in each picture too for plenty of variation. And if you need some more hints there are plenty out there. If you can take a photographer with you to prom then you will be guaranteed some beautiful shots of your night right through to the end.
